This is a five minute short film from Georges Méliès. Like most of his films, Méliès himself appears in the movie--as the jester. He bounces about and tries to entertain the king.

Then, the jester goes about doing the usual Méliès stuff--magic (as he was a stage magician before turning to films).Sadly, the final portion of the film is degraded an...

But, at least the guy in the boat gets to see some mermaids--and leaves the boat (and seems to be breathing just fine!)...
